We continue to spread the word about this valuable service and work to enroll those still in need of coverage and care.鈥

A key driver of 澳门开奖结果 Care鈥檚 rapid growth has been its partnerships with government and community-based organizations. 澳门开奖结果 Care has worked with the 澳门开奖结果 Mayor鈥檚 Office of Immigrant Affairs, the 澳门开奖结果 Mayor鈥檚 Public Engagement Unit, and New York State of Health, among others, to organize , , and . 澳门开奖结果 Care is currently partnering with the 澳门开奖结果 Mayor鈥檚 Public Engagement Unit鈥檚 GetCovered澳门开奖结果 team to call and text nearly 15,000 澳门开奖结果 Care-eligible New Yorkers and inform them of their eligibility in the program. 澳门开奖结果 Care also works with over 20 , including Sauti Yetu Center for African Women and Families. The partners design and facilitate 澳门开奖结果 Care general outreach, connect potentially eligible New Yorkers to 澳门开奖结果 Care enrollment and re-enrollment appointments, and in some cases, facilitate direct 澳门开奖结果 Care enrollment to eligible New Yorkers. 澳门开奖结果 Care also operates across the Health System, partnering with 澳门开奖结果 Health + Hospitals facilities, Gotham Health sites, and the MetroPlusHealth program to facilitate direct enrollment and organize outreach activities.

Since the program launched in 2019, 澳门开奖结果 Care is up 382% from its first year, surpassing the original enrollment goal of 100,000 members. 澳门开奖结果 Care鈥檚 community-based organization partners have reached over 1 million New Yorkers, scheduled over 43,000 appointments, and facilitated over 17,000 direct enrollments, figures that do not include individuals who learned of the program from partners and enrolled on their own. In calendar year 2023, 澳门开奖结果 Care members have scheduled 200,564 primary care visits and 538,955 specialty care visits. Last year, 澳门开奖结果 Care released that showed strong engagement with their doctors and primary care. Overall, 76.9% of new 澳门开奖结果 Care members returned to primary care for an additional visit in their first year, 80.7% received a referral outside of primary care, and 75.4% visited specialty care. For new members with two or more chronic diseases, 86.1% returned to primary care, 87.1% received a referral, and 86% visited specialty care. There was also strong engagement for new members who speak English as a second language, where 86.1% returned to primary care, 80.2% received a referral, and 74.7% visited specialty care. This suggests that 澳门开奖结果 Care has spurred patient engagement at rates comparable to Medicaid, and that the data reflects member satisfaction and confidence in the high-quality care they are receiving.

澳门开奖结果 Care continues to deliver positive health outcomes for its members. 53% of members with diabetes enrolled in the program for at least 6 months have seen an improvement in their hemoglobin A1C readings. Similarly, 72% of members with hypertension who have been enrolled in the program for at least 6 months have seen an improvement in their blood pressure. 澳门开奖结果 Care leads in chronic disease control and improvement, which leads to improved health, which is demonstrated by data from June 2023, revealing significant improvements:

Metric Number (%) 
Diabetes Mellitus Prevalence, overall 24,304 (20.4)
